When I first started blogging I was using coupons heavily, I had given them up for awhile and then I started reading all the money saving blogs and decided to give it a go. Recently, however I was convicted to begin eating a local/all natural diet again. I'm also trying to be less dependant on drug stores for toothpaste, soap, shampoo, deodorant, etc. I've found recipes for all of the above and as I run out I will try each homemade recipe to see which work the best for me.
I still need to shop on a budget for our family of seven. I am working on a budget and here's what I'm thinking my breakdown will be...
$75 for meat
$100 for fruit/vegetables ( two of my girls only eat fruit/veggies)
$50 for baking supplies
** I haven't shopped this type of budget yet, I'm just thinking out loud, I have no idea if this will work or not.***
How does your budget breakdown? Do you think I could manage on this budget without coupons?
